    I i have a Fujitsu lifebook a series AH502 , I was wondering if I could put a i3 or amd8 processor or something similar I want to make this laptop faster and better performance I don't want to spend money on a new laptop so I want to update some of the parts ram/processor etc if a Pentium processor is the best this motherboard can handle can I upgrade the motherboard if so have you any suggestions ? Thanks.

    Laptops are very different that desktops. Most are not made to be upgraded other than adding more ram or a larger hard drive, or a SSD. if you are running a 32 bit version of windows the max ram you can use is actually a little less than 4GB If running a 64 bit version of windows you can go to the maximum the laptop allows. After reading the reviews on your lifebook it was not designed as performance laptop. It was design as a budget system.

    Is this your laptop? http://www.notebookcheck.net/fileadmin/Notebooks/Fujitsu/Lifebook/AH502/IMG_9837.jpg

    According to cpu-upgrade you have an 80% chance of success if upgrading to core i3 3120m. It's not a massive jump in performance, you probably won't notice any difference.

    Your money would be better spent on an SSD and another stick of RAM, it's worth the money if buying second hand parts, but that comes with risk of component failure. With what you would spend buying brand new upgrades, you may think that it's worth selling your laptop and buying a better one.
